On any given day, find yourself in the midst of a busy crowd of Stockholmers on their way to the day’s next plan. Wander to the old city where the buildings, cobblestones, and narrow streets take you back to Stockholm’s 13th-century beginning. Comprised of 14 islands and a transit system that travels across waterways, Stockholm is well connected. While some corners are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon within easy reach. Sweden prides itself on openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize, Stockholm is a capital led by forward-looking decision makers, artists, innovators, and scholars.
